Lindsley Early Origins



The surname Lindsley was first found in Essex at Lindsell, a village and civil parish in the Uttlesford district. The place name dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was first listed as Lindesela. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
Literally, the place name means "dwelling among the lime-trees," having derived from the old English words "lind" + "sele." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
Historically quite small, in the late 1800s, the population was 393 and at that time was home to a small ancient church named St. Mary the Virgin, Lindsell. Hence, conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands and village of Lindsell, a Norman noble by the name of Ranulph de St.Valery, under tenant to tenant in chief, Eudo the Steward. The Domesday Book lists the village as having a mill and five beehives.
